In a previous post we all shared what we do when we’re not blogging and your answers got me thinking.
What inspired all of you to start a blog?
What did you know about blogging prior to that?
Prior to blogging, I was already spending numerous hours a day on the computer, researching, reading, playing games, emailing, hopping from site to site, expanding my knowledge base and/or doing my job.
When I started hearing the word “blog”, I didn’t know what it was, so I Googled, “What is a blog?” The definition of “a weblog” answered my question, however, I didn’t know what a weblog/blog looked like, nor did I look for an example.
Months later when I landed on Steve Pavlina’s blog, I “got it”.
When I saw how having a blog was a great way to communicate ideas AND generate a passive income, my interest was piqued. I thought, “how perfect”. I can continue to enjoy spending time on the computer while I “download” life lessons from years past, share hints and tips, throw some ads on my sites, make a few dollars, get back into writing and leave this world a better place. It sounded like a win-win.
As we all know, making money with is blog is not as easy as is written, however the rest worked out fabulous and resulted in not only a newly found passion, but the making of many cyber-friendships.
Needless to say, I am now hooked.
Now it’s your turn.
What inspired you to start a blog?
Did you know what a blog was?
Has having a blog met your expectations?
Curiosity has the best of me. I’m anxious to hear your answers.
